Phoenix has done something kind of cool by Seventh & Glenrosa Avenues and Central Avenue by Portland Street. It is a rainbow - pride crosswalk to honor all the gay, bisexual and transgender residents of Phoenix. I think it is a cool way to show that our city represents all of its residents as well as being an area that open-minded. It's a great idea to not only attract more people to the area but also make people who already live here feel more a part of the community.
"The time is right to move this proposal forward to bring rainbow crosswalks ... so that our city can continue to embrace and thrive in our diversity and our inclusion and in welcoming all people who wish to visit, live in, work in, build a business in or simply enjoy the city of Phoenix," Phoenix Pride Executive Director Michael Fornelli said in April.
Phoenix is also not the only city to do this nationwide! Cities like Atlanta, Houston, San Antonio, San Francisco, Seattle and Washington, D.C. also have these really cool crosswalks.
